Verapamil

I am just curious I've been on verapamil for awhile I was wondering if the verapamil caused my afib. Has anyone else been on verapamil before they were diagnosed with afib?

    I have never heard of verapamil causing atrial fibrillation, but some doctors think atrial fib is a condition in the presence of which verapamil should not be used.

      Won't bore you with the detail, as I've posted that before, but I've proved that in my case bp meds caused and affect my afib. I had a consultation with a heart doctor and when I showed her the evidence she scoffed and said she could use me as a case study. That's doctors for you.

      Marco, I think some Drs do not listen ..I feel if they had this problem they would take it a lot more serious.they have no clue what an evil thing this a fib is ...I can go all day without Afib and take my blood pressure medicine and it starts it up so if that isn't proof no what is and this is every night. I would really love to be able to stop at my blood pressure medicine just to see but I'm afraid to take that chance so I'm at the mercy of the doctor unfortunately
